Every parent has to go through this, I’m sure. A time comes when you have to find out something about your child you didn’t know before and certainly didn’t expect to, or not that early. As it just happened this evening, I went to the bedroom to look after Jun. The lights in the bedroom were dimmed. The door was half open, I sneaked inside and found him lying halfway hidden under the blanket on the bed. There he was, focused on himself and totally immersed in the act. It seems he felt unobserved and avariciously used the windows of opportunity when he was alone for a short time… it’s the first time he didn’t use his whole hand, but managed to find his thumb and suck on it alone. Two months and five days old, I didn’t expect him to use his fingers and thumbs that well before christmas.
